This Beano Book was released for 1942, available for 3 shillings and sixpence, featuring fan favourite Big Eggo on the front cover.
This annual had plenty of comic strips, jokes, and adventure stories. These adventure stories would have just one or two images per page, with a paragraph of text instead of speech balloons.
Some stories would only have one illustration, followed by pages of words, like a regular book rather than a comic. Not every Beano character was a kid - some were adults, animals, or mythical creatures!
Only some of the pages were in colour - and even then would only use red and dark blue ink. This page also has some funny rhymes at the bottom, instead of jokes or adverts.
